TDF Corporation currently produces 70% of the front axle I-beams used in Japan in truck front axles. These are designated as the critical safety parts of a truck's suspension system and, therefore, require a high degree of quality and reliability. In addition, we have a 15-line facility producing large (100+ kg) and small components (less than 1 kg), in either limited or mass production quantities, working daily to produce products to meet our customers' needs.
At TDF Corporation, we have developed a method called piercing, used for inserting holes in products that would normally require traditional hole punch machining. Our process works by extending the shaft component used for forging. We continually strive to bring such incremental improvements for customers, resulting in greater material yield and shorter lead times.
